What type of coverage do you need?

Long term care insurance is a type of insurance that goes beyond medical care specifically to cover the cost of long-term services. You can receive long term care while in a nursing home or in your own home.

Long term care is one of the largest financial risks that many Americans face. Nursing home costs can vary, yet they average about $6,350 a month, which can cost between $60,000-$70,000 a year, or more. Those that receive their long-term care service at home spend on average $1,600 a month.

What does Long Term Care coverage do for me?

  • helps to preserve your assets
  • allows you and your family to choose your place of care and have control of the care you need
  • helps you to maintain your independence
  • alleviates the financial burden on your children and family
  • provides peace of mind
  • contributes to your overall financial plan

With medical innovations and the average American living longer, there is a greater chance you will need some form of long-term care.
